A playful counting book for young children, Circus 123 features circus performers giving an amazing show in the ring, on the high wire, on bikes, and on the flying trapeze. Children will be dazzled by the performance as they learn to count to 10.


"A quirky counting book ... distinguished by van Genechten's entertaining crew of strong men, acrobats, and jugglers." —Publishers Weekly

"Straightforward action and pace give the counting some momentum. Clever illustrations, featuring solid, chunky ladybugs amid delicate sketches of circus ... bicycles and a trapeze, create a visual counterpoint that will keep young eyes interested, as do the red and black hues that dominate the thick, sturdy pages." —Jesse Karp,
